golden), a more scowling brow, and beneath it an eye which glares frightfully and ruthlessly. ,As they come rolling and heaving along the ground they give a metallic sound, and from their flamboyant crests shoots a fire stronger than torchlight. They make the elephants their prey, and themselves fall a prey to the Indians in this fashion : the Indians place before the dragon's hole a scarlet robe embroidered with golden characters, in which by magic they put a soporific charm strong enough to vanquish the abashless eyes of the reptile.

Then the Indians attack him as he lies, laying about them with axes till they have cut off his head and despoiled it of the precious stones. Imbedded in the mountain dragon's head, they say, are stones of rich lustre, emitting every-coloured rays and of occult virtue.
But it often happens that the dragon seizes the Indian, axe and all, cunning and all, and then off he goes with his victim into his hole, making the very mountain wellnigh to tremble. This kind are said to inhabit the mountain by the Erythrean Sea ; their frightful hissing can be heard, and sometimes they come down to the water and sail the high seas at large. It is impossible to ascertain, and unwarrantable to assert, the length of years to which this animal attains. This is all that I know about dragons.
